adding fish. I got a Banggai cardinal for the reef, he'd been at the LFS since 6/17, and a Bi-color angel for the 75g. :19: :19:

The cardinal eats like he's never been fed, but the angel is too busy finding all the caves to notice that I am the "food god" . Hopefully tonight he will be hungry and eat........

I'd keep an eye on that Bi-colour angel. They have terrible survival rates in captivity, especially for a Centropyge.

Most come from the Indo-Pacific and are collected with various drugs, including cyanide. I think Vanuatu and Australia are the only countries which export these fish and do not use drugs.

If it is eating, that is a good start. Just be prepared to put a lot of effort into it to keep it's health up. 4-5 feedings a day for the first few weeks is what I would do

Bi colors are beautiful fish but are very difficult to keep prolonged in an aquarium. :scry:
Unleashed hit it on the head. keep an eye on him.

I do know of one here in NZ which has been kept for about 7 years. It's massive.

Let me try and find a pic of it
